Kin Kin Road—Six Mile Creek: replace timber bridge

Design is progressing to replace the Six Mile Creek timber bridge on Kin Kin Road, 3km north of Pomona, with a new 2-lane bridge.

To improve safety, capacity and reliability the Six Mile Creek timber bridge will be replaced with a wider, 2-lane concrete structure.

The new 4-span bridge will improve flood immunity.
